I covered up all personal info, but does anyone ELSE see something wrong with charging people to come to a baby shower?

Let me also add, the women who hosted this shower live in THE most exclusive part of Savannah, The Landings. I was looking forward to the shower, until I saw the $5.00 charge. When I called tpo RSVP, I told them why I wasn't coming; that it's tacky to expect money to defray the cost of the shower and that the hostesses needed a refresher from Miss Manners about it.

*ETA* the shower was for the wife of our associate priest. I am by no means blaming her, but could NOT believe the audacity of the people hosting thw shower to even A.) invite more people than the venue could hold, and B.) to CHARGE people for coming.

I don't think $5 is too much but I wouldn't go.  It is the principal.  Now if it was a close friend and they HAD to do that because they didn't have a lot of money I would bite the bullet.

yes, and setting a limit to only the first 125 people to come? lol. If it was someone I cared about, I would just pay the 5$ and go, but just an acquaintance, I wouldnt.

the invitations themselves are super cute though :)
